I disagree that binary code counts as general knowledge. That's fairly specialized information.

English isn't my native language, and still I know that it was a split infinitive. So I agree it should be general knowledge.

I agree. If the question had been 10001 represents 17 in which code, that would be general knowledge. Knowing how a defined number is represented in that code - specific knowledge.

Dividing by 2, simple basic arithmetic. Knowing binary is a power of 2 base, simple general knowledge. Converting 17 base 10 to base 2, a simple combination of the above.

How do people not know what an infinitive is? It's a basic (unchanged) form of a verb. You can't properly grasp grammar/tense forming without knowing what an infinitive is, so I reckon it's taught as early as the first grammar lessons in elementary school.

The nano seconds are easy. How many seconds in a minute? And then keep adding zeroes till it's accepted. That's what you get with metric ;)

It's quiz #49 how is it supposed to be truly general knowledge? General knowledge is what shape is a stop sign, or what is the ball of light in the sky called?
+1
level 65
Jan 9, 2015
What shape is a stop sign .......... that is in the USA and is not GENERAL KNOWLEDGE .....outside USA.
+1
level 31
Jun 2, 2015
stop signs are red octagons pretty much everywhere. They may say 'arret', or whatever is the local word for 'stop', but they're designed to be recognizable for visitors everywhere, from everywhere. Where are you from that they're shaped or coloured differently?

Not just USA, all of Europe and most other countries as well. Very few exceptions, Japan has triangle and a few countries have the old triangle-in-circle version that used to be common also in Europe.

I've actually never seen Top Gun, but there's a scene in Meet the Parents where the lady and her ex start calling each other Maverick and Iceman, and in the movie she later says "Top Gun was really popular at the time we were dating". So yeah, that's my little slumdog millionaire moment.
